The man found dead inside a Hollywood Hills home after exchanging gunfire with
Michael Valentino, 27, of Los Angeles, was found Monday inside the home in the 8100 block of Gould Avenue with a gunshot wound after officers responded to a domestic violence call.
The officers had just crossed the home's threshold when Valentino fired at them with a semiautomatic gun, injuring one, authorities said. He then barricaded himself inside.
The injured officer — who sources said was wounded when she was hit in the face and arm by wood fragments — was "doing well" at a hospital, Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck tweeted Monday.
The department has not released the name of the officer.
Authorities said an investigation into the officer-involved shooting is ongoing.
